. what do you think? was baker speaking out of turn or not? john avalon and hogan digly. there's a disagreement in the nra. i don't know if you view it as a smackdown, it appeared to be to me. what do you make of this public divide within the nra? >> it's very, very interesting. of course, the nra has been thrust into the news because of the tragedy at newtown. they have a chance to actually grow their brand or hurt their brand and i think it remains to be seen exactly what the long-term effects of this are. but i saw that ad using the president's children. i think the spirit and the intent, the message behind the ad, look, his children are protected by people with heavy artillery and guns, wouldn't you want your kids to be protected the same way? that makes sense. the problem is, personally, my opinion is, i don't like using children in political ads of any kind. i think consistently speaking, i also don't like the president when he uses children to sign a bill, obama care uses children as props, he used them when he did the executive orders about gun control. so those types o

of the most contentious moments came when senator john mccain asked whether the 2007 surge troop in iraq was successful. >> the question is, were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. i would like you to answer whether you are right or wrong and then you are free to elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> let the record show that you refuse to answer that question. now, please go ahead. >> well, if you would like me to explain why -- >> no, i actually would like an answer. yes or no. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no. >> another hot topic at the hearing today, it was a 2006 interview that hagel gave to former middle east peace negotiator, erin david miller. now, in that interview, hagel said this. "the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here." now, today of that comment about the "jewish lobby," hagel said categorically, i regret it. >> i've already said i regret referencing the jewish lobby. i should have said pro-israel lobby. i think it's the only time on the record that i've ever said that.

of his two personal trips. a lot of questions. >> i want to bring in john avlon. i want to emphasize you know, to our viewers, this did start in the blogosphere and i think a lot of people were unsure whether there was a story. now, all of a sudden, fbi gets involved and people are covering it. is that why it hasn't received much attention until today? you've talked a lot about it. >> absolutely. explosive allegations, they've been simmering for a long time. not just this, but a separate one involving an intern in his office. when the daily caller first put forward these allegations, it was days before the election, in the wake of hurricane sandy and there needed to be corroborating evidence. now, e-mails to fbi agents have been released in this investigation that would appear to corroborate those claims. they are serious allegations for someone who is the incoming chair. >> there are a number of politicians who have been caught hiring prostitutes and then things that start in the blogosphere, anthony weiner, that end up being true. is it more prevalent that the headlines indicate? >> i

a contributor for us. representative tancredo, john mccain is part of this bipartisan drupe. like i said, a lot of people together you wouldn't expect to be standing together. but here's what he said about why republicans have to do this deal and do this deal now. >> elections. elections. the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that there are many issues in which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens, but this is a preeminent issue for those citizens. >> obviously, when you look at the election last time, president obama got 71% of the latino vote. mitt romney, 27%. is john mccain right? >> no, he really isn't. he's no more right this time than he was back in, what, '87, when he and another gang tried to put together a very similar bill. he and a member of that time of it was called the mccain-kennedy bill. very similar in every respect to what i have seen so far. i must admit i haven't seen the whole thing. from what i heard about it, very similar. at any rate, it's the same rhetoric, and it's just as wrong today as it was then. the

shootings or not? "outfront," cnn's john avlon, ryan, let me start with you. joe biden's comments that he said there at the beginning, saying this isn't going to fundamentally change whether we have a mass shooting or not, sounds similar to wayne lapierre, who you are aware is the head of the nra. listen to him. >> gun control, you could ban all dianne feinsteins, do whatever she wants to with magazines, it's not going to make any kid safer. >> okay. they're buddies now. >> they're not buddies. consider the audience that joe biden was talking to. joe biden is good at making deals on the hill because these talking to these guys as equals. we know what's what, i'm not going to promise you the moon, this might make a little bit of a difference. here's the way policy-making works in general. you have a crisis, you break glass in case of emergency. there's some policy agenda that's been collecting dust on the shelf and you break it out. remember the iraq war, same thing. 9/11 happens, iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, but a lot of people wanted to invade iraq -- so, they thought, hey, this san

and reconnaissance purposes up front. >> eric, here's the likely new cia chief john brennan. he was the guy who sort of started the whole drone thing. here's what he said about drones that seems to be really important when we think about what the repercussions could be for this country. >> there's another reason that targeted strikes can be a wise choice. the strategic consequences that inevitably come with the use of force. as we have seen, deploying large armies abroad won't always be our best offense. countries typically don't want foreign soldiers in their cities and towns. >> but they also don't want drones over their towns either. look at pakistan where the president has gone all-in on drones six times more attacks by drones under president obama than under george w. bush. pakistanis, 94% of them think drones kill innocent people. what do we get out of this? >> here's the trade-off. the problem is, this part of africa is one of the big problem spots for the u.s. intelligence community. i travel with general carter hamm, head of the military's africa command, this month and he told me this is o
